Punta del Este Arenas Hotel & Resort
Ranked #6 of 11 Punta Ballena B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 January 2013

They advertise as 4 stars, the only thing that is 4 stars is the sq meters of the room, other than that, this is not even 2 stars, in 5 days there, they didnt change the bedsheets ONCE.. never.. the room was noisy, there is a disco on the other part of the hotel (the hotel is actually 2 hotels, the other side is called Chihuahua resort and is a nude hotel) and the music from the disco was VERY loud on our room.. the place was build with very VERY cheap materials, the room had NO POWER OUTLETS at all.. so forget about charging your cellphone or laptop, wow.. the room didnt even have a PHONE.. come on.. No PHONE on a 4 star hotel? no room service, actually NO SERVICE, they didnt let a friend of us past the front gate.. so they must wait for you outside, in the deserted street.. under the sun.. there are construction debris all over.. and about some reviews here that give it 5 start.. well those reviewers also gave the hotel next door 5 start (same owner) so take them with a grain of salt.. btw the hotel is in a quiet area .. kinda far from downtown punta del este.. but thats not an issue.. and its closeby to the beach

Room Tip: if you absolutely MUST stay here, try to be as far from the DISCO as possible, if not, no way to sle...

Reviewed 30 December 2012

It advertises itself as a 4 star resort. It's not even a 2 star. The rooms are not finished, there are still holes on the walls, the shower head was broken, the workmanship of the room and overall place is very shoddy. There is not even a phone in the room! WiFi is advertised, but nonexistent, except by the tiny reception area. There is only 6 parking spots within the gates, and this hotel is actually in a very remote area, not Punta del Este, as they advertise. it took us half and hour driving to get to Punta. The rate charged was outrageous for what we got.
The only good thing was the cold air conditioning in the room.
The included breakfast was very poor, consisting of watered down OJ and a couple of slices of bread with a slice of ham and cheese... I can go on and on...
Definitely do not come here!
